in the coming weeks. >> what about trade? is there any movement so far? has the united states delegation been able to iron anything out on that front? >> reporter: no, it hasn't. it's really a curious clash of rhetoric with reality. the president in his speech in japan yesterday talked about u.s. advocacy, or trade throughout this entire region. but there is a pending free trade agreement in america right now with south korea. it was negotiated in june of 2007. it's been sitting there waiting for action. the last two of the bush administration, well into the first year of the obama administration, it would be the biggest free trade agreement the united states has with any other nation since nafta. it would add u.s. trade representatives ten to $12 billion to the gdp. but because the obama administration wants more access for the u.s. auto makers, south koreans aren't high on that. that agreement is stalled and there has been no efforts here, no visible effort for the obama administration to bring the two nations any closer on that free trade pact. others could commence and follow after that.
